Stop moaning and get in the game. We will only get more resources by taking activity out of secondary care. That means better access to consistent high quality Primary Care for all. Better identification and management of long term condition esp cardiovascular, respiratory, cancer and dementia; managing hard to reach populations like homeless, students and care home populations; managing people at the end of life; reducing admissions, readmissions and unnecessary referrals that can be managed in Primary Care. That way we shift or rebalance resources into primary care. There is no magic wand in a cash strapped system such as we have. Can we do it? As the man said, Yes We Can, actually we have to. All you anonymous angry contributors, stop barking from the sidelines and join in. Believe it or not, this is the age of Primary Care if only you can see it
